ABOUT THE SHOW
Avenue Q is the winner of the Tony Triple Crown for Best Musical, Best Score, and Best Book. “The play is part flesh, part fur, and packed with heart.” Avenue Q is a laugh-out-loud musical that tells a timeless story of a recent college grad named PRINCETON who moves into a shabby apartment all the way out on Avenue Q. There, he meets KATE MONSTER (the girl next door), ROD (the Republican), TREKKIE (The internet ‘sexpert’), CHRISTMAS EVE (an unemployed therapist), Gary Coleman (the superintendent…yes he is!), LUCY THE SLUT (need I say more?), and other colorful types who help PRINCETON finally discover his purpose in life!
WHO IS AVENUE Q APPROPRIATE FOR?
Adults love Avenue Q, but they seem a little “fuzzy” on whether it’s appropriate for kids. So here is what I think…Avenue Q is great for teenagers because it deals with real life. It may not be appropriate for young children because Avenue Q addresses issues like sex, drinking, and surfing the web for adult material. But I would say that if a teenager was brought to the show by their parent, they would think their parent was REALLY cool!
